Nice, Anna. I loved this. I loved how he felt that he was fading away like the flames. Very inspired. Excellent job!
Author's Response: Lol, I actually got the inspiration for this while snowed in. >.< I think I was desperate for heat, teehee. Anyway, thanks for another lovely review! :D
Wow. I liked it. It was very powerful. If you would like my opinion, I thought that one of the lines was a bit too long, so maybe you could break it into two lines or something....but maybe I jsut don't understand poetry.
Hopefully this gives you a link to my profile. Althought I'm sure it won't be very interesting, seeing as I haven't actually put anything on there...
Well, I'm off to review one of MRHD's stories so she gets a link too.
Author's Response: *huggles* Yes, of course I want your opinion, as I don't think of myself as much of a poet. And even if I did, I would still want your opinion. :D Anywho, thanks for the nice review!
*stares at screen in shock* That is so powerful. How the Death Eater thinks of himself - amazing. Wow. He's loyal, but at the same time, he hates being nothing...
the embers crackle and fade.
They are gone,
and I realize
so am I.
Wow. The realization that he's fading away...becoming nothing, and the way he (she, whatever) says it is so strong and powerful...did I mention that already?
Great reference to the fire. It burns strong for a while, but then it must die...just like the Death Eater. ('Die' more meaing 'fade' there.)
Wonderful job. I love how some lines are long and the others short - and some only one word long! And wonderful endong. Really packed a punch. Just...wow. I said that already. I know I did.
I also like how the Death Eater realizes his unimportance to Voldemort. Voldemort just thinks of them as followers, people to be used. He doesn't care for them at all. The Death Eater's knowledge of that was chilling.

Author's Response: I've always loved watching fires in fireplaces, even though we light ours about once a year. But, anyhow, this poem stemmed slightly from that. Thanks for such a nice review! :)
This is great. I really liked how you compared a Death Eater to the flames; and how it compares to how they feel about being a Death Eater, no matter how loyal they might be.
Author's Response: Thank you! :)
